Reviews - What do customers think about Sesame Street - Elmo's Potty Time?
Too slow and not enough like Elmo's World for the little ones Feb 21, 2008
My son is 2. So having that out there, this review is geared towards parents of younger toddlers considering this DVD.
My son LOVES Elmo with a passion. I think "Mo Mo" was his first word and since then he's begun to say his ABC's and 123's. Elmo is engaging, reaches kids at their level and his show, Elmo's World, is short, quick, and has a certain layout that is comforting for littles. They like routine.
That being said, I thought this DVD would be great for my son once he started to show signs of wanting to potty train. I bought this and an Elmo Potty chair. Well we loved the potty chair but didn't like the DVD.
It's slow paced. Too slow for my son. And even too slow for me. I thought it was going to be laid out more like an Elmo's World episode but it's one continuous story broken up by older Sesame Street clips and segments that connect with the idea of learning something new but have nothing to do with potty training. Also, because it is a continuous story, there is a lot of dialogue by the human actors and that's when my little one gets up and confronts me, asking for Mo Mo and pointing at his Elmo's World DVDs.
In all, I would not recomment this to parents of a young toddler or a toddler who is very familiar with Elmo's World.
Informational for my toddler Feb 20, 2008
I have a toddler girl who is not quite ready to train. This dvd is a wonderful introduction for her. I read the criticisms that the dvd introduces different names for pee pee and poo poo. That's wonderful! My child needs to know all the information she can get in order to understand the world! I want an educated child, not a child so protected that she is not comfortable with her body and the names for its functions. Let's face it, the body has basic functions and we all have to use the bathroom, so let's know what dookie means, what wee wee means, etc. Another criticism is that Elmo is only seen on the potty one time. My child is very observant, as all toddlers are, and she "gets" it from only one scene.
Excellent for teaching the concept of using the potty. Feb 18, 2008
My son is twenty-four months. He loves Elmo and watches this video about four times a day. For my family, this is a video to prime our son for going to the potty. It doesn't teach how to go to the potty.
To be honest, it is up to the parent to teach that. Those who want a video to teach it are just plain lazy.
My son is being to understand the concepts of going to the bathroom and what it involves. We hope that when it is time to really start to train our son, this video will have helped in his understanding of the concept and make our job easier.
not at all useful Feb 16, 2008
I am looking to buy a potty DVD to get my daughter (27 months) motivated to use the potty (again). She knows what to do and she can do it and did it but she prefers diapers.
My daughter actually liked the DVD but didn't want to use the potty which obviously is not the fault of the DVD. So for us it would serve the purpose but my expectations were completely different. I thought that the children would actually been shown what to do and how to use the potty. Instead everyone only talks about the potty. Elmo (as baby Elmo) sits on it once but that's about it. What we see in detail is how to wash hands after having gone to the potty which is just mentioned and not shown.
If I had bought this DVD to accompany actual potty training I would have been very disappointed. Luckily I only rented it and I haven't decided if I am going to buy it (only because my daughter likes it).
Elmo Feb 11, 2008
How can you go wrong with Elmo? My son loves the movie. HE is potty trained now.
